The RECORDsplice fibre-optic splicing system from the AMP Netconnect Business Unit of Tyco Electronics is an innovative system which features an integrated cleaving and installation tool. The new connectivity solution is equally suited to use with indoor LAN/Campus installations and outside plant networks.
In particular, it is ideal for use with passive fibre network elements such as wall-mountable enclosures and splice panels, which makes fibre applications more cost-effective and reliable, as well as easier and faster to install.
The new tool features a quality cleaver with a precision cutting angle of eight degrees and a capacity of 20,000 cleaves. It incorporates an integrated storage system of fibre cut-offs, and provides tool-controlled positioning of the cleaved fibres into the splice.
This robust, compact and lightweight unit is fully mechanical and requires no power or batteries. It is also maintenance-free, does not need any adjustment, and can be safely used in many controlled environments. It can also work with very short fibre lengths, and is designed for ease of use by both right-handed and left-handed operators.
